Red breasted merganser family

I saw this family of red breasted merganers at Musselburgh today. It was so sweet to watch them preening.





then they gathered closer together for more preening

Yes, preening is an entertaining little event, as is dust-bathing.

You must visit me today, Juliet; I had a guest you will just love!

Great action there!

There is a little family of mergansers on our slough now, but they are not the red-breasted and are quite shy
